MPS National Scrapbook Day challenges # 8 - 12

Finally finished all of the MPS challenges, HOORAY!  My craft corner looks really messy, but that's OK, right!? :)  Here they are:

Challenge 8: Summer theme
This cut is from the Sugar & Spice cartridge and it's supposed to be a bib, but it looks like a jar to me!  Fruit always reminds me of summer.  Paper is from Martha Stewart's school stack.

Challenge 9: Glitz, glam, and glitter

What could be more glammy and glitzy than a huge diamond?  Cut from Indie Art and I glittered the "sparkle."

Challenge 10: Pet

This one was doing double duty and was given for Meowmy's Day to one of my friends who has an orange fur baby named Alley Cat.  Alley is the king of everything, including drawers!  Cut from Meow cartridge and "kitty kitty" chipboard piece is from my stash.

Challenge 11: Pink, green, black

This one is also doing double duty and will be given to my bestie's younger sister for her birthday this month.  She loves Hello Kitty (as do I!)  The cut is from Hello Kitty cartridge and the face is from Peachy Keen's Hello Kitty faces stamp set.  LOVE that I don't have to deal with gluing those little noses!

Challenge 12: Kids

This was my first attempt at a word book.  My God son's birthday is this month so I though I'd create him a word book.  It's supposed to say "Tanner" but now I'm noticing that a word book with more than 4 pages should be created on a 12x24 mat.  His name is just too long for 12 inches!  It was created using my Gypsy and welding the letters to the square shapes.  Here are some pages from the book:

Animal cuts from Create a Critter cartridge and bugs are 3D stickers by K&Co.

More K & Co. 3D stickers and journaling stamps are just some I got from a garage sale.

More Create a Critter and K & Co.

Wow!  Those were a lot of projects!  I did take all weekend to finish them all but I'm glad I did!  I'm caught up on birthdays and projects for the rest of the month!  Lol, but I'm sure more projects will pop up... isn't that how it always works?  Till next time, folks!

Great projects!!! I just spent an hour cleaning My scrap room after that MPS 12 hrs of challenges. I usually clean up after each project...I'm a messy scrapper...this time I just kept going...I had a serious mess in there. I have never ordered from Two peas...but I've heard good things about them. Usually shipping to Canada is BRUTAL...but since your an American state, I'm sure it will be reasonable. good luck
